Good afternoon loves!
I’m very sorry I haven’t kept up with blogmas this week, it was just one of those weeks from hell, but I like to stay positive, grateful, and thankful. I hope you all had a nice week & a fun weekend! Since I was MIA on my posts the past several days I will be posting twice today!
A very popular tag going around is the #ChristmasTag and what’s better then celebrating this time of year with answering this Q&A and can you ask for a better post for blogmas!
So grab your eggnog & a maybe a snack, cause this a long rambling of answers. (FAIR WARNING!) 🙂
What’s your favorite christmas movie?
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation! No questions asked, I love me a Griswald Christmas! Oh , and we can ‘t forget every single Hallmark Christmas movie.
Favorite Christmas colors?
Winter wonderland. White, Silver, & Gold! & a hint of red here and there.
Do you prefer to stay in your PJs or dress up for Christmas?
Ummm, that’s a tough one! Probably both! Christmas Eve for dress up & Christmas Day for PJS, the coziest, cutest, comfiest, festive PJS, until dinner time that is then it’s back to dress up… Maybe?
Do you open your presents Christmas Eve or Christmas?
Both! Secret Santa gifts, family gift exchange, & one from my grandparents on Christmas Eve. Gifts from everyone else & Santa Clause Christmas morning!
Have you ever built a gingerbread house?
A long time ago… let’s just say it didn’t go to good! But we def plan on making one this year!
Any Christmas wishes?
Dreaming of a White Christmas, but here in the North East we’ve had a pretty mild December, but hey fingers crossed for a Christmas miracle!
&& wishing for World Peace of course!
Favorite Christmas Smell?
The scent of pine from Christmas greens, baking of sugar cookies & gingerbread, the air on a cold crisp winter day, eggnog with nutmeg & cinnamon, and bourbon!
Favorite Festive Food?
TAMALES, TAMALES, TAMALES!!!
Are you guilty of sneaking a peek at your presents or prefer being surprised?
Totally guilty of sneaking a peek!
What tops your christmas tree?
A silver snowflake star! (check in later for christmas tree reveal!)
Any Christmas Eve traditions?
Growing up we always spent Christmas Eve with my mom’s paternal side of the family, making home-made tamales, watching Christmas movies, opening presents from a gift exchange exactly at midnight. And we cant forget always leaving cookies & milk for Santa and carrots for Rudolph & his friends. Now that I am sort of kinda a grown up, David & I are trying to create our own traditions, but it is hard when your whole family is 3,000 miles away! Hopefully we can get one going soon!
What are you most looking forward to this Christmas?
I’m honestly looking forward to the whole holiday season especially the two weeks of the 22nd to the 5th since my mom & brother will be in town! We have so many plans from going to see The Rockettes & The Nutcracker, ice skating in Central Park, hanging out at home baking, movie nights, and just enjoying each others company.
What the best part about Christmas?
Luke 2: 8-14
The Shepherds and the Angels
8 And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. 10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For aunto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel ha multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”
